As the Russia-Ukraine war disrupts global economic recovery, higher energy and commodity prices continue to stoke inflationary pressures—weighing on economic growth prospects and exacerbating balance sheet vulnerabilities for both sovereign and corporate borrowers. At the same time, rising geopolitical risks make international policy coordination increasingly difficult, including on global sovereign debt policy as well as on energy, climate, and sustainability issues.
This online event will offer fresh perspectives on growing debt-related strains across key emerging and developing economies as the Fed rate hike cycle continues and other major central banks contemplate tighter monetary policy, pushing up borrowing costs. The discussion will also consider the potential impact of higher geopolitical risk on debt sustainability, as well as broader implications for climate policy, net zero commitments and fast-growing ESG debt markets.
